Growth is painful.
I am actively and consciously living through the pain of breaking open and out of my shell.
Taking space for myself.
Listening to myself.
Remembering my inner child-self. This spiritual upgrade I am experiencing is almost a nostalgic feeling.
This Venus retrograde is demanding me to revisit unhealed and still achy wounds. There are things that I thought I had forgotten. Things that I didn’t realize affected me so deeply. “Secrets” that I am remembering. Everyday that I continue to live with the pain from my past there is no way I’ll be able to fully break open and out of my shell.
So here I am, healing my inner child. So hear I am, taking back what was taken. So here I am, taking leaps of faith. So here I am, loving myself. So here I am, allowing myself to BE.
And as I allow myself to be, I am taking time to truly appreciate my ability to balance all of these things. I will say yes to new experiences. I will ghost anyone who cross my boundaries. I will not commit to anything I don’t want to. I will not answer to everyone who wants something from me.
So here I am, Mothering Through Pain, and healing my inner child. Peace.
